I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Funtivity Friday - Show Tunes and Quotes


Every day on our twitter page, @saysmesaysmom we post a quote of the day. Once a month, we look for quotes we want to use for the next month. It can be kind of boring just sitting and looking through a ton of quotes though so we made it into a game. It goes like this:

1) Mom names a show

2) Aurella picks out a song from the show and starts singing it

3) Mom picks out an arbitary word from the song Aurella is singing and looks up quotes related to that word until she finds a good one.

For example: 

The show might be: Annie

The song might be: Tomorrow

The line might be: The sun will come out tomorrow

There are quotes about sun like:

May your sun always shine, and your sky be forever blue -  a quote attributed to Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Every day is a good day to be alive, whether the sun's shining or not - a quote attributed to Marty Robbin

There are quotes about tomorrow

Tomorrow is promised to no one -   a quote attributed to Clint Eastwood

Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today - a quote attributed to James Dean

You can even use the line itself as quote by attributing it to the songwriter.

Of course, some songs line are  easier to find words to use as a starting points for finding quotes and some song lines don't really have any words that are good starting points for finding quotes. Howevever, eventually we find all our quotes for the month and have a little fun with Broadway show tunes in the process.

Of course, this would work with other kinds of songs too. We just generally prefer show tunes.

Visit our Twitter page daily for the  @saysmesaysmom quote of the day!
